EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : httpd (EulerOS-SA-2016-1039)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99802
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the httpd packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- mod_lua.c in the mod_lua module in the Apache HTTP Server 2.3.x and 2.4.x through 2.4.10 does not support an httpd configuration in which the same Lua authorization provider is used with different arguments within different contexts, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions in opportunistic circumstances by leveraging multiple Require directives, as demonstrated by a configuration that specifies authorization for one group to access a certain directory, and authorization for a second group to access a second directory. (CVE-2014-8109)
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected httpd package.
